I discovered this quilting blog last summer, ironic because I used to live about a mile or from this lady and didn't find her blog until I moved 3 states away. I bookmarked her blog for, among other things, this Urban Lattice quilt.
The quilt-along is long over, but that's okay! I browsed through the Flickr group of Urban Lattice quilt and fell in love. Check it out yourself here. I like each one better than the last! I love the modern feel of this quilt and think my friends will too.
Here's where I am starting the month: I have the main fabric--Kona Mushroom--and then a solid black for the sashing. I'm trying to pick through my stash for the smaller corner triangles and feeling a little stuck. It's been 6 month or so since I've seen their house, and not sure which direction to go, color-wise. I need to keep reminding myself that neither of them are quilters, so their reaction is going to be "ooh, wow a quilt!" and not, "ugh, why did she use that fabric?"
Hoping to get started on this quilt over the weekend!
What is the longest that fabric bought for a specific project has sat before you started using it? (The fabric I have for this quilt is NOT the winner in my sewing room--I have several other neglected fabrics that have been sitting around much longer!)
